Who doesn’t know them? The cracks in the roads that make driving and walking way less comfortable? Juliana Santacruz Herrera has had the funny idea to turn these unwelcome side effects of ‘nature at play’ into something more pleasant by filling the gaps with bright and colorful strands of yarn. Juliana currently fills potholes in Paris. Although her work might not be for eternity, it surely inspires some Parisian passers by to smile.
